Description

5k and 10k chip timed races to support Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy via Run for Our Sons, in an effort to fund research for a viable treatment for boys living with Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

Who is Matthew?

Matthew is an 11 year old boy from Greensboro who loves reading, history, animals, sports, especially football and the Carolina Panthers.  He is curious, brave, determined and has the most infectious laugh. He also happens to have Duchenne muscular dystrophy.  As of today, DMD has not put too many limits on him and we want to keep it that way. That is why we created Miles for Matthew. He is currently in his first clinical trial for treatment at Duke and thanks to all you champions out there, we are getting closer to an independent and healthy future.  We would love for you to join us in the fight for the future of all boys with Duchenne.

Race Courses

Please take the time to view the map.  We make every effort to make the course clear, but it helps to be familiar with the general flow, especially in the two locations where the 5K and 10K courses split.  Note to 10K runners:  There is a short section parallel to Market Street where we urge you to stay on the grass.
